Hazy amber with a big and lasting, fluffy white head. Intense and unique aroma of funk, spice - lots of pepper - wood character, and some exotic fruit, especially pineapple. Dry and spicy flavour with wood character and lots of tannin and pepper for refreshing result. ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a very hazy copper color with a humongous white head. The head looks like egg whites beat to stiff peaks. Aroma is floral, yeasty, some barnyard notes, lemon zest, oak. Flavor is peppery hops, floral notes, lemon zest, some citrus, more oak. Palate is medium light, highly carbonated, finished tart, dry, and bitter. Another great one from Ron. joefoodie (15) - USA - MAY 9, 2010
A delicious beer. Slightly sweet up front with a slight tang from the rye. The finish is crisp & dry. As it warms, the sweetness mellows and there is a touch of oakiness as well as some sourness. illidurit (2338) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle courtesy of iceicebaby. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a huge fluffy khaki head. Aroma is a first lemony, then appley, then spices like nutmeg and clove come into play, giving it a fleeting apple pie character. Flavor is nice and funky, really bretty and with some phenolics as well. Probably the closest thing to Orval other than Orval that I’ve tasted. There are lots of parallels: orange color, fruity aroma, bretty flavor, bone dry finish, high-but-soft carbonation. The mouthfeel is spot-on Orval. Really not much in the tripel department. Definitely not an ester-forward beer. But that’s fine with me. Orval is incredible, and this sorta-clone is great too. Travlr (24665) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Ed, thanks! Slightly hazy golden color, bright white head. Aroma of beautiful white wine, dust, pepper. Taste is really nice, softly sour fruit and dusty barnyards and attic corners. Delicious.

Golden orange body with a small white head. Funky brett, fruity notes, malt, yeast. Lovely flavor. Bready citrus with loads of Jolly Pumpkin brett funk. Delicious. punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Gusher bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a MASSIVE, rocky white head. The aroma is a nice blend of spice, banana, clove, damp wood, slight black pepper and that distinct Jolly Pumpkin funk. The flavor is bold and spicy with the rye pepperyness standing out much more than the aroma. The Belgian esters and oak aging blend to make a nice luscious earthy fruit character with hints of banana creme and clove. The body is creamy and quite full and that massive amount of carbonation comes across quite soft and smooth. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010

Cloudy, hazy orange yellow with puffy meringue like head. Notes of funk, cotton candy, pineapple, oak. Nice balance. Yum. egajdzis (6574) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Hazy dark golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, citrus, wild yeast, wood, vanilla, rye, and wild yeast. Taste of citrus fruits, light spices, vanilla, toffee, and a wild finish.
